SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Attorneys for a former UI vice president for Student Services have asked that the Iowa attorney general be disqualified from representing the UI, state Board of Regents, and UI President Sally Mason, according to representative from the Attorney General’s Office.

Phillip Jones accused the parties of wrongfully terminating him after an outside report criticized his handling of an on-campus alleged assault. Jones claimed the firing jeopardized his relationship with potential employers, injuring him financially.

The lawsuit stems from controversy surrounding an alleged sexual assault in Hillcrest on Oct. 14, 2007.

Jones’ attorneys believe there may be a conflict of interest in this case because the attorney general represented Jones in a different case. A judge has said he will read the arguments and give a decision at a later date.
